These kinds of sunglasses will elongate your face and sharpen your natural bone structure, including your cheekbones.

Just like angular edges balance out curved ones, if you have a square face, it’s ideal to go with rounder sunglasses shapes featuring soft lines to counteract that. Circular or oval frames will add a flattering sense of softness to your shape.

Those with heart-shaped faces (also called triangular shaped) have wider foreheads and narrower chins. While other approaches are more about creating a contrast, for heart-shaped faces, it’s best to complement those features. That means sticking to cat eye and butterfly styles. More delicate frames will complement smaller face features, while larger features can be a good match with thicker frames.
